    Hi Micky1701, thank you for your forum post.

    The closest tools that Redgate has available that may help you extract an image from a backup file, would be Professional Editions of both SQL Compare and SQL Data Compare.

    First use SQL Compare, to compare the backup file as the source to a database as the target.  Then deploy the table which contains the image to the target database.

    SQL Compare compares two data sources and deploys the difference in the database object structure to the target.

    Next using SQL Data Compare,  compare the backup file as the source to a database as the target.  You will then be able to deploy the image in the backup file to the table in the target created using SQL Compare.

    SQL Data Compare compares the rows of data held in tables ( and Views) between two data sources and deploys the data differences to the target.

    Further reading on SQL Compare can be found in the Product Documentation and Help Documentation.
    Likewise for SQL Data Compare Product Documentation and Help Documentation.

    I hope the above helps.
    Many Thanks
    Eddie
